As a country, we are blessed with the choicest of fruits. While mangoes, watermelon and pineapples remain some of the most popular ones, there are several other berries and fruits that are just as tasty and good for the body but do not get their due. And one such fruit is jamun (or black plum). It has a sweet-tangy taste and leaves a strong aftertaste on our palate. However, if you thought eating it just as a fruit was the only way to enjoy it, then you are in for a surprise. Do not just limit yourselves to nibbling on them; instead, try these 7 unique recipes and make jamun an interesting addition to your diet.
